in my current role with the Diocese of Southern Ohio serving as the Becoming Beloved Community Coordinator, i offered this reflection in a recent newsletter publication.
navigating times such as these call for growing our own capacities as diverse teams to respond wisely from a place of love rather than react from a place of wound and fear. this takes practice, intention, and patience. there is discomfort and JOY along the way. we experience our inherent connection and interdependence and that is… beloved community.
